For a group of people so limited in number, the Jewish community has had a huge impact on both global events and local politics. In this vibrant new look at Judaism, sociologist and cultural critic Keith Kahn-Harris provides a remarkably sharp insight into this history, and particularly the diverse Jewish communities (and diverse ideas of Jewishness) that exist today.
Keith Kahn-Harris is a sociologist and writer based in London. His books include 'Turbulent Times: The British Jewish Community Today' (with Ben Gidley). He has written for many publications including the Guardian, the New Statesman, the Jewish Chronicle, the Jewish Quarterly, the Times Literary Supplement and Times Higher Education. He also teaches social research methods at Birkbeck College and the Open University.
